UN-stuffed zuchinni

3 ribs celery chopped
6-7 white mushrooms sliced into fourths and then cut in half
3 zuchinni halved lengthwise, then cut lengthwise again, then cut middle/seeds/core away. Cut each "spear" into 5 pieces (about the size of your large toenail)
1 and a 1/2 pounds of ground beef browned and your favorite seasoning added. I used garlic salt and lemon pepper
2 eggs
3 cups favorite cheese. I used colby-jack

Brown ground beef and remove to separate bowl.
Stir fry celery 2-3 minutes in pan that had the ground beef in it.
Add mushroom and continue stir frying for another 2-3 minutes
Add zuchinni pieces and continue stir frying for another 2-3 minutes. Sometimes I put the lid on the pan and let it all steam a little to get the veggies cooked and softened slightly.
Return ground beef to pan with veggies. Allow all to cook through and veggies are ALMOST done.
Crack 2 eggs into the pan and stir the eggs into the mixture. As the eggs cook, the mixture will be slightly stuck together.
Sprinkle 3 cups of grated cheese over all and fold in. Mixture will be slightly gooey and stick together.

In the meantime, I cook our favorite quick noodles. Usually a Rice a Roni flavored noodle. Tonight's selection was a parmesan angel hair. (This is our favorite)

Serve a hefty spoon full of the zucchini alongside a spoonful of the noodles. (If you're brave, you can even mix them!)

Quite yummy!
I would love to hear from you if you try this.
